    So pretty! The warm yellow color reminds me of some of the yellow Freesias here once they age a bit.

    Soft as… Lovely!

  10. Lovely. I don’t have any crocus, but my daffodils and hyacinths are coming up.

  11. Beautiful. Like sun shining up from the ground. 🌞

  12. I’ve never seen this color crocus before. It looks so soft and, dare I say, yummy. 🙂

      Thanks, Barbara. This may have been a cross between white and yellow that the bees made. I don’t remember ever planting them, but who knows? I’ve been here over 30 years and have planted plenty in that time. 🙂

    This is a shade I don’t remember seeing in flowers before; it’s very appealing.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Linda. I’m not sure if this one came from a supplier or was a cross the bees made between yellow and white, but it is the only bunch in the lawn. Purple predominates, with white and yellow seeming to be not so strong.

    I’ve noticed that the crocus are stupendous this year. Have you experienced the same thing?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, I guess they were already dormant, so the drought didn’t bother them. I’m wondering about the spring flowering shrubs that set buds in summer… so far the forsythia was a bust. It may have been the deep freeze we had, too. Apparently, the peach harvest will be nil around here this year. 😦

  15. Alice says:

    I hope they ‘spread’….at least some’bunny’ hasn’t made a meal of those beauties.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Alice. Until the edges grow up for protection, the bunnies don’t seem to be comfortable that far out in the open. Summer is a different story!

  16. It’s spring! Wonderful buttery color.

  17. Spring is coming your way.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      With the temps to rise to 70-80º in the next few days, it’ll feel like we skipped spring altogether. Strange weather, but we’ll be back to normal spring temps in the 50s next week. The last patches of snow are fading fast and the bulbs are bursting forth. 🙂

    One of my very favorite crocus….pretty pastel spring!

  19. pbmgarden says:

    Unusual coloring, but lovely. Enjoy your early spring charmers.

  20. They’re lovely, Eliza.

  21. cindy knoke says:

    Lovely! Mine just passed. Sigh.

  22. Tina says:

    That color is gorgeous!

  23. They are so pretty. Wonderful photo, Eliza!

  24. Soft and yummy. Pretty shot, Eliza.

  25. I take it there isn’t also a margarine snow crocus.
